The Tian Xia god Hei Feng, also known as the Duke of Thunder, is the god of the sea and the sky, whether it brings good fortune or ill.1


Hei Feng is normally depicted as a powerful tengu swordsman whose black feathers smoke with power. He wields a nine-ring broadsword whose blade flashes with lightning and whose nine rings crashing together causes thunder. Hei Feng is normally shown as being accompanied by divine servants known as the counts of wind, rain, thunder, and lightning.1

Religious symbol

Hei Feng's religious symbol is a lightning bolt arcing out of a dark storm cloud.1


Hei Feng is married to Lady Jingxi but the two have been separated for centuries and neither wishes to reconcile. Despite this, it is anathema for followers of Hei Feng to disrespect Lady Jingxi.2


Hei Fang is the god of storms, wind, and the sea and has an unpredictable dualistic nature. He is both the gentle rains that nurture the village crop and the driving storm that can easily destroy that same village. Those whose lives depend on the wind and the weather pray to Hei Feng: farmers commonly ask for favourable weather; while sailors beseech him for fair winds and a safe journey. Hei Feng is also the patron deity of tengu and is worshipped in any land where they can be found. Due to both of these factors, Hei Feng is widely worshipped across all Tian Xia with the most notable centres of worship including: Dtang Ma, Goka, Hwanggot, the tengu nation of Kwanlai, Lingshen, the islands of Minata, Minkai, Wanshou, and the aquatic nation of Xidao.1

A group of tengu Hei Fengan priests known as the Sunderstorm Covenant were key contributors to the establishment of the tengu nation of Kwanlai, though their creed of overwhelming response to any slight has caused their faith to lose influence.3
